Grilled Seabass with caramelized brussels sprouts

I love this recipe. I am not a huge fan of brussels I have to say.  The additional caramelised onion and


the pistachio gives it enough of yummy flavour though for me to actually enjoy this side dish. Nice and easy and definitely falls into quick dinner category.
